<DIV><FONT size=2>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Yes.. I have found this volume to be of
great help as well.&nbsp; I use it almost every time I try to study the
GNT&nbsp; (published by Baker Book House,&nbsp;Grand Rapids).&nbsp; It comes
with a neat little 5 X 7 card explaining the abbreviations and symbols, so you
don't have to continually look at the information in the front of the
book.&nbsp; Of course, after a little while you learn what the abbreviations
mean and you don't&nbsp;need&nbsp;the card.&nbsp; </FONT></DIV>
<DIV><FONT size=2>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; I also want to underscore an earlier post
by someone suggesting Mounce's "Morphology of Biblical Greek."&nbsp; Very
helpful.&nbsp; In fact, the entire Zondervan series is quite useful, in my
opinion,&nbsp;especially&nbsp;to anyone who is trying to learn the language on
his/her own.&nbsp; This might not be the series of choice for many of the
big-Greeks, but for us little guys it's real handy to use a set of books that
are keyed to each other,&nbsp;and so clearly written.&nbsp; </FONT></DIV>
<DIV><FONT size=2>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; As most everyone knows, Bill
Mounce&nbsp;has also produced a Greek/English&nbsp;interlinear, with parsing (I
forget its title).&nbsp;&nbsp;If memory serves,&nbsp;however, he alters the word
order of the Greek to match the English, and I&nbsp;don't think I care for
that&nbsp;feature.&nbsp;&nbsp;Aside from that,&nbsp;</FONT><FONT size=2>the
advantage of the Mounce book&nbsp;is that, unlike the Friberg volume, it
provides an&nbsp; interlinear English translation.&nbsp; &nbsp;I know&nbsp; we
are advised not to use&nbsp;interlinears by those who are qualified to give
advice, and they're probably right, but I really find it helpful as a quick
check on my translation efforts, and I think it's possible to use one without
turning it into&nbsp;a crutch.&nbsp; Anyway, if you're looking for a parsing
guide, the Mounce volume might be worth examining.</FONT></DIV>
